Jasper County 4-H members will be conducting a food drive during the Jasper County Fair July 18-24 in Colfax. There will be a station in the vendor building for donations that will be distributed throughout the county to all community food pantries for residents in need.  

The fair is free to everyone but not everyone can afford meals every day. Bring items such as ramen noodles, mac and cheese, canned soup, box dinners, canned meat or fish, cereal or oatmeal or even pancake mix and syrup.
